Early Act at Baden Powell

TARNEIT students have signed on as junior Rotarians in a Victorian first.

Baden Powell College has formed EarlyAct - the first junior Rotary club in the state.

Sixteen grade 5 and 6 students are part of the club, which will meet fortnightly and complete three projects.

The club is sponsored by the Wyndham Rotary Club.

Principal Julie Mason said Rotary was a group of people who shared a desire to make a positive difference in their community.

Ms Mason said three EarlyAct projects had been identified.

One is a school-based project where students will set up a litter management program.

The second is a community project where the group will support younger preschool children with reading and the third is an international project where the group will raise money to build a toilet block for a school in Bangladesh.
